After an epic day in Kyoto taking a boat ride down the river and seeing autumn colours at Kodaiji Temple we also went to Nijo Castle to see the art aquarium.
We arrived about 8:30pm and didnt have to wait at all to get in, my coworker said she went the day before us and waited from 5pm for two hours. So go later!
It started with a fish tank x movie, but it was super busy we could hardly see, even the third time the movie started we werent much closer.
After that we walked along and there were lots of lights on the floor, when you look closer you realise they have fish in them too.
Kimono display with lights and music.
There were lots of fish bowls under lights, some were really crowded.
Large earth fish tank, which also changed colour.
More displays of fish.
We had to queue a while to see the main attraction.
Finally my favourite, kimono fish.
The fish made a striking pattern on the white kimono, the lights changed colour and there was music to go along with it.
A little sinister near the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed the art aquarium, last entry is 9:30pm so it got much quieter near the end of our visit. On the way out there is a bar and some food stalls, but because it was closing most of these were closed.
The art aquarium is on at Nijo until December 14th.
